Climb aboard the world-famous Thriller Jet Boat for the ride of your life! You’ll explore the beauty of Banderas Bay like never before on this speedboat that gets its mojo from a powerful jet stream of water. The wind will whip your face, the waves will soak you through and during it all your adrenaline will be pumping and your heart will be thumping!
Our Thriller Jet Boat is not just any old speedboat. It’s a 12-passenger, 440-horsepower monster machine capable of high speed drifting, thrilling hairpin turns, incredible 360° spins and even dives. And yet, as exhilarating as the ride is, it’s also incredibly safe thanks to our highly trained captains and crew. You’ll be strapped in for the duration of the ride and know all the signals the captain will use to indicate what’s coming next!
More About the Thriller Jet Boat
This is our newest ocean adventure in Puerto Vallarta – and one that will leave you a little giddy but ready for more. That’s because a jet boat pulls water from under the boat through an intake and into a powerful jet inside the boat before shooting it out through the stern. Because this boat does not rely on a traditional propeller, it is capable of high-intensity maneuvers that leave riders breathless.
What a Thriller Jet Boat Ride Is Really Like
Imagine speeding over and through the waves at a lightning-fast 45 miles per hour – that sounds exciting, right? Now imagine making tight 360 degree spins without losing any speed! Or going from top speed to a full stop in an instant, and getting sprayed with seafoam in the process! Have you ever nose-dived into the water in a boat? You might scream at first but by the end of the ride, you’ll be screaming for more!
Will I Get Wet?
Oh yes, you’re going to get wet. We recommend that guests wear dry-fit clothing because even on warm days you’re going to feel a little wind chill as our Thriller Jet Boat rockets through the waves. And because this ride will take you on several inversions UNDER the waves, you’re going to end up completely soaked – which can mean you feel a bit chillier. It’s worth every shiver, though!
What Else You Need to Know
Because our Thriller Jet Boat ride is such an intense experience, it’s important that guests consider their fitness level and health before signing up. If you have neck, back, knee or shoulder issues, asthma or breathing problems, a heart condition or other medical concerns, be cautious. If you’re not sure whether this thrill ride could exacerbate any health issues you may be dealing with, just check with your doctor. When they give you the green light to climb aboard, we look forward to giving you the ride of a lifetime.
